Overview

What is a specifically feminist perspective on science and technology? Focusing in particular on the socio-cultural implications of the latest scientific and technological developments, this book proposes a site of resistance to hegemonic discourses and practices of science and technology.

Four sections cover science as a whole, the new technologies of the postmodern era, bio-medical discourses and nature. A distinguished cast of contributors explore the central feminist concerns in each arena, through the metaphors of monster, mother goddess and cyborg. They argue that feminists cannot ignore the emancipatory as well as the oppressive potentials of technology. Bringing together 'natural' and 'social' scientists, the book paves the way for a specifically feminist strategy for science, technology and health care.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Congratulations to Nina Lykke and Rosi Braidotti for their brave new challenge to feminist scientists and political thinkers. They provide a much welcomed text to move us beyond the analytical and ideological limitations of the feminist academic position. It is an exciting read, full of originality and insight. Interdisciplinary and international, it crosses and reworks familiar boundaries with an energy and enthusiasm which should be the mark of all feminist projects. A very important book to all feminist writers and actors in the field of cultural studies, political and natural sciences." - Wendy Harcourt.
